him for this. he made a prediction how mitt romney would govern with an eye toward the next election. but to get reelected in a country with a rising minority population and a shrinking republican coalition, his shape-shifting nature would endeuce him to enter as a moderate. romney is more of a flexible flip-flopper than obama. he has more influence over the most intransigent element in the washington e kwaugs house republicans. that's the strangest endorsement. the guy has no backbone. he's our guy. what an amazing statement by david brooks. >> what about the shape-changing experience? >> that's the point. he was the sister soldier when he thought the lyrics went too far. this guy has never stood up to the right. >> brooks goes on to say that he thinks only mitt romney can make congress cooperate. i think this is really a very, very dangerous idea that unless one side gets it's way, they are not going to cooperate. the public is fed up with this. they really want congress to cooperate with the new president, no matter who it is. >> the republicans are running for the senate now mour

to washington, what do you take away? >> i believe that mitt romney will be the next president but if president obama is reelected, i will work with them and i will work to move the ball down the field economically for the state and our country. if the voters of the state of ohio go in that direction, they don't want a rubber-stamp, the votes for his party 98% of the time. >> i think if this happens, people sitting back and say, sharon brown -- sherrod brown is his own guy. he fights for his district and i would guess -- it could be a mixed message. but of course i'd work with mitt romney. i can recite a dozen cases we have made this way. >> the coin toss -- i think i got this right, mr. mandel? >> i was inspired to join the marine corps by my grandparents. one of my grandfathers was liberated by allied troops and the other served in the air force. we can debate like this and we can disagree but when the debate is over. we will shake hands. there will not be any punches thrown or shots fired, nobody will be in jail. but in places throughout the world, that is what happens. the rock the world, p

mitt romney would do over the next four years. only thing we know for sure is mitt romney's saying he's going to cut taxes and barack obama says he's going to raise taxes and neither one of these -- >> that's the argument in the messaging out on the campaign trail. but when you look at what this president has done -- >> no, no, no, no -- just stop. >> what? >> just stop. i'm talking about the future. you want to talk about the past. if i say the president's intellectually exhausted and he has no plans for the next four years, please don't make my point by talking about what he did the first two years. >> no, i'm not. >> what's he going to do the next four years? >> i'm asking if the framework of the past four years, for example -- >> no, no, no, what's he going to do the next four years? >> he's going to try, number one, do taxes on the rich, number two, going to continue to try to reach his goal of exports, they're at 43% right now, they want to get 50% and more to help build out middle class businesses. >> he's got nothing. you can say he's got nothing. >> you're absolutely wrong. >
handle this is hurricane. >> steve, how do you think the romney camp views this, who does need this and some other margins between now and next tuesday? >> no, they're at cross-purposes here. christie is about -- right now he's imperative to appeal to blue state voters and the romney imperative is to sort of make obama look bad and win over swing state voters. it's another example. we've seen it a few times this year with christie actually, the same dynamic. i can think back earlier when romney was trying to stone wall on taxes, and christie was put on national television and christie quickly realized he doesn't want to be making excuses for mitt romney not releasing his taxes. it's going to go over horribly in new jersey. doesn't look good, period. it was christie much all people who said, you know what, mitt romney should release his taxes. we've seen this a few times from christie. his brand is dependent on being seen as a bipartisan guy. you can't do anything in this situation except working cooperatively and praising president obama if you're going to be a bipartisan guy.

think they'll be able to counter those effectively enough in the next couple of days. >> i think so. i just saw an ad going up today and tomorrow, the response ad. it's really hard hitting. it goes through the position that romney took, and then chrysler's and jeep's response to what he said about china. then his last line is wrong then, dishonest now. i think that plays into the narrative that people have for romney. you know, there are still some undecided voters out there. this is going to hurt. this is going to hurt him. it's just a blatant lie that i think it will be effect, and the obama game is countering that, and i think it will be helpful in the last week. cenk i think this may be where he jumps the shark. this is where he gets way out over his skis on an issue that is so personal to people in ohio and so blatantly false and not rebutted by biden or obama or clinton or me or those up in toledo. it's been rebutted by chrysler and jeep and they smacked him right out of the gate. i think that will have an affect on the voters in ohio and those who may not have made a decision ye
cleared. mr. romney's running mate paul ryan held one event in florida before cutting the day short and heading to his home in wisconsin. in terms of hurricane sandy's direct effect on next week's election, chuck todd reports tonight that the fema director craig foou gait has told states if they incur extra costs because of the storm, if they have to move polling places or bring in generators for power, should sandy cause elections officials any expensive changes, states and cities will be reimbursed for those costs by the federal disaster relief, ev if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing. this is not a time for ideology. let's bring in michelle franzen in battery park in lower manhattan. everybody has been keeping an eye on the storm surge and wondering how high the water is going to rise. and what threat it's going to impose. what can you tell us about the conditions and how they are changing now? >> reporter: they have certainly deteriorat deteriorat deteriorated. we have a photo to show you. there's some water that's been reported gushing into the brooklyn battery tunnel.
advantage of raising capital gains rates next year? or people who want to get ahead of a potential romney presidency? why are people willing to sell so aggressively? >> well, first of all, i would tell you, we are in a very good place in the market. the health care real estate market is a trillion dollar highly fragmented market. and so we see continued opportunities because of our low cost to capital. to do attractive deals that work for sellers and work for ventas shareholders. and those trends will continue. >> last question, where they talk about the fiscal cliff, this is october 23, downgrade ventas to hold on care concerns. there's worried about long term acute care and your company. i don't get it. >> well, i think that really overlooks the private pay component that we've been talking about here and how much of ventas' business is really being driven by private pay assets. i will tell you that there is uncertainty around nursing home reimbursement, but we have built a business that is designed to thrive in any economic reimbursement or capital market cycle. and that's what we at v

is that if ohio votes me in as president i'll be the next president of the united states. thank you. >> here is what we do know, brian, both mitt romney and barack obama are not doing any campaign events at all tomorrow. and wednesday's schedule is still on the bubble. we'll see if they can get back on the trail. at that point it would be with just six days to go. >> well, chuck, what happens -- last time we had a hurricane, the halloween storm last year, we had power outages north of new york city. upstate new york, connecticut, rhode island, massachusetts, maine, vermont, eight to 11 days. what happens if people can't get to the polls to vote? is there a mechanism to delay a vote in certain places? >> reporter: well look, the states run the election system, it doesn't come from the government. i can tell you the topic came up. the fema director, fugate, did talk with officials. this is what happened in the state of florida when it happened in 2004. they moved polling places and got generators where it was necessary to open precincts. and by the way, the federal government reimbursed the st
but what's interesting is, you could see an argument if the momentum favors mitt romney, then it is so tentative. can't read a lot into it, then that snapshot favors him. if you cut it off next tuesday and everything is going the way it is going, advantage romney. you could also argue that maybe, and we're not seeing it in polls yet, the way the president responded, commander in chief always gets a bum in the polls how he responds to crisis. this president like a lot of president pretty good in time of crises. he has gotten high prize from chris christie in new jersey. it might give him a bump and might freeze that in place and to his benefit. i don't know how to play it. i think it is very clear to see the nominal shift in the polls we have seen has been more toward mitt romney and in swing states of late, more toward mitt romney. for example, tomorrow morning when trading resumes, say everything hits the fan at the same time and there is a tumult and people will start questioning as charlie was questioning why we closed trading for a couple days? i'm in your camp, melissa, there is t
